MVM Announces winners of the 2020 All-World Virtual Military Vehicle Show - Military Trader/Vehicles

As the spread of the Corona Virus cancelled shows in early 2020, we looked for ways to keep our hobby vibrant and engaging. 

One of those efforts was the creation of the “All-World Virtual Military Vehicle Show back in March 2020. Using Facebook’s “Groups” feature, we invited our 42,000+ followers to participate by posting photos of their vehicles and voting for their favorites.

Over the following five months, more than 1,400 joined the group. Enthusiasts and collectors from around the world entered more than 100 vehicles. Thousands of people viewed the show and voted for their favorite vehicles by "liking." The show ended on August 31, 2020.

Thank you, all, for participating through submitting an entry or voting. It gave all of us a little enjoyment and hope during this very unusual time. Keep ‘em rolling!

We want to thank everyone who participated. This has been a lot of fun. We got to see vehicles from around the world. To share them all with you, we have created the galleries below based with vehicles organized in our judging categories.  The vehicles appear in no special order and do not reflect the number of "votes" received.

Thank you to all who entered and voted. This has been a really fun show. We hope you enjoyed "going to the show" while remaining safe in your own home.
